  • 8 to 9. My 7 week old in the last week just started sleeping 9 hours/night so it feels good! My other 4 all slept 8-9 hours/night by 2 months and never stopped.

  • 8 to 10 everynight. But my kids are adults not living at home now. When they were little? 4 if I was very lucky.

  • I'm in an insomnia phase - so less than 4 hours a night over the past week.
